I know lots of people already have lots of more impressive flowers than this. But these bulbs were only planted last fall, and it’s been a difficult March.
My downstairs neighbor and I cleared the weeds out of this part of the front yard last October, and I ordered bulbs. They arrived a couple of days after I broke the ankle, so she and her husband put them in.
I ordered a cheap assortment, because I wasn’t sure whether they would all get eaten by squirrels or rabbits, but they seem to have come up pretty well. There are other buds, so there will be better pictures in a couple of weeks.
I spend many hours over several days trying the fix the sound on my Dell Optiplex 990 desktop running Linux Mint 19. Finally, I asked myself, “Can I spend a little money instead of a lot of time?” and got this USB sound interface for $8.15.
It worked out of the box — no config file, no mixer settings.
